Attitude by Deborah

ArtistCellar TEXtures Series 2: Gera (substitute TEXtures Series 2: Bird)
Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic Paint: Lime, Tangerine, Magenta
Gelli Plate

For this week's card I made two gelli prints using the same stencil and paint colours. Until I came to write this up I didn't realise the Gera stencil was no longer stocked but Bird is very similar.

I brayered stripes of the three colours onto the Gelli Plate (the colours can blend into each other) then placed the stencil on top. I pulled my first print with the stencil still in place and it is this print I used for the background and the panels. 

Then I removed the stencil and pulled another print. Onto this I stamped the wing (twice) and the face in black Archival ink. I cut them out (cutting the 'hair' away) and glued them in place, adding one wing as a quiff on the top of her head. The three pink dots are cut from the second wing.

I coloured in the dots, the lips and the whites of the eyes with the white post paint pen. I used Carmine on the lips and eyelids. Then I cut my panels (from off-cuts of the background print), edged them with black and stuck the word stickers on top.

After edging the background panel with the orange and carmine ProMarkers I mounted it onto the black card.
